Self Drive Van Hire For Special Events

Self drive van hire can be a practical solution for a range of special occasions and events. In today’s post we will look at some of the common scenarios in which a self-drive van hire can be a cost-efficient and practical solution. We will look at the utility of van hire for weddings, sporting events, corporate events, concerts, and charity events.

Self Drive Van Hire For Weddings

Transporting Décor

Hiring a van is perfect for moving large quantities of decorations to and from the wedding venue.

Moving Wedding Equipment

Wedding equipment such as audio systems, lighting fixtures, or large props can be easily transported in a self-drive van hire.

Bridal Party Transport

Depending on the size of the bridal party, a van hire might be a convenient way to get everyone to the ceremony or reception venue at the same time.

Delivering Wedding Favours

If the wedding favours are bulky or there are a lot of them, hiring a van can make delivering them to the venue much easier.

Wedding Planner's Needs

A wedding planner might hire a van to move supplies, props, and equipment necessary for organising the wedding.

Flower Transportation

Florists often use van hire to transport large orders of flowers, especially delicate arrangements.

Catering Use

Self-drive van hire can be used by caterers to transport food and beverages to the wedding venue.

Photography Equipment

Wedding photographers might need a van to carry their equipment, especially if they have a large amount of gear or large props for staged photos.

Guest Transportation

In some cases, a van could be used to shuttle guests between the ceremony, reception venue, and accommodations, especially if parking is limited. Checkout our 6 seater van hire, 7 seater van hire or 9 seater van hire options.

Moving Gifts

At the end of the wedding, a van hire could be very useful for transporting wedding gifts home or to a secure location.

Honeymoon Transport

If the newlyweds are heading straight off on their honeymoon with a lot of luggage, they might find a van hire useful, particularly if they're having a staycation.

Self Drive Van Hire For Corporate Events

Equipment Transport

From audio-visual gear to marketing materials, a self-drive van hire can help transport all the necessary equipment to the venue.

Relocation of Staff

If the event is off-site, a van can provide transportation for staff members. We offer 6 seater van hire, 7 seater van hire and 9 seater van hire to cater for the number of staff you need to transport.

Transporting Booth Displays

For trade shows or exhibitions, a van can transport large booth displays and promotional materials.

Shuttling Attendees

If there are off-site activities planned or if parking is limited, a van hire can be used to shuttle attendees to and from the venue.

Food and Beverage Transport

If you are catering the event yourself or bringing in food and drink from various suppliers, a van hire would be useful for transportation.

Product Transportation

If the event involves showcasing or selling products, you'll need a way to transport these items to and from the venue.

Moving Furniture

For events that require specific furniture or large amounts of seating, a van can make this transportation easier. We recommend a Luton van hire for transporting furniture or flatbed van hire for awkward items that may struggle to fit in a contained vehicle.

Document and Materials Transport

For conferences or seminars, there might be a need for transport of large quantities of print materials like brochures, guides, or handouts.

Collecting Supplies

If the event requires special supplies that need to be picked up from various locations, a self-drive van hire could be useful.

Setup and Teardown

A van hire could be crucial for transporting all the tools and supplies necessary for setting up the event and tearing down afterwards.

Self Drive Van Hire For Sporting Events

Transporting Equipment

Sports equipment can be bulky and difficult to transport. A van hire provides ample space for everything from balls and nets to helmets and pads.

Team Transportation

When a team travels together, it builds camaraderie and ensures everyone arrives on time. Hiring a van allows for the whole team to travel together comfortably.

Event Setup and Breakdown

Organising a sporting event often involves transporting various items such as banners, signs, and portable seating. A van hire makes it easier to bring these items to and from the event site.

Catering Purposes

Providing food and beverages for the attendees or participants? A self-drive van hire can be used to transport all the necessary catering supplies.

Accommodating Spectators

Vans can be used to shuttle spectators from parking lots to the venue, especially in cases where the event location has limited nearby parking.

Moving Merchandise

If there's merchandising involved, like team jerseys, equipment for sale, or promotional materials, a van hire would be ideal for transporting these items.

Outdoor Adventure Sports

If the event involves adventure sports in remote locations, a van hire can be used to carry participants and their heavy-duty equipment.

First Aid and Emergency Uses

A self-drive van hire could be stocked with first aid and emergency materials, ready to provide aid or transport if necessary.

Media and Broadcasting

If the event is being covered by the media, vans can be used to transport broadcasting equipment.

Lodging Logistics

Band Travel

Self-drive van hire can provide a way for the entire band and crew to travel together, ensuring everyone arrives at the venue on time and ready to perform.

Event Setup & Breakdown

Concert organisers often transport items like staging equipment, lighting, decorations, and more. A van hire is perfect for moving these items.

Merchandise Sales

Bands often sell merchandise such as T-shirts, records, or posters at their concerts. A van hire can not only be used to transport these items but also provide temporary storage.

Catering Purposes

Providing food and drinks backstage for the crew, performers, and possibly VIP attendees? A van hire can be used to transport catering supplies.

Accommodating Media Teams

Media teams often have lots of heavy equipment including cameras, microphones, and lighting. A van could be used to transport this equipment.

Self Drive Van Hire For Charity Events

Transportation Of Supplies

Charity events often require a lot of materials and supplies such as tables, chairs, banners, food, beverages, and more. A van hire can help transport these items efficiently.

Setting Up & Breaking Down The Event

A van hire is extremely useful for transporting items needed to set up the event and then for packing everything away afterward.

Donation Collection & Distribution

If the event includes a donation drive, a van can be used to collect items from various locations or distribute donated items after the event.

Moving Staff & Volunteers

If the charity event is in a remote location or there are multiple venues, a van hire could be used to transport staff and volunteers.

Some charity events may involve providing services such as free health checks, pet adoptions, or educational resources. A van could be set up as a mobile service unit.

Removal Van Hire: Top Tips For A Successful DIY Move

Moving home can be both an exciting and stressful experience. One way to make the process smoother and more budget-friendly is by taking matters into your own hands with a do-it-yourself (DIY) move using a removal van hire. This approach allows you to have full control over your moving timeline, packing, and transportation. Hiring a removal van for a DIY move offers several benefits, including significant cost savings compared to hiring a full-service moving company, greater flexibility in scheduling, and the satisfaction of a hands-on, self-directed relocation.

Changes To Highway Code

There have been 3 new rules introduced for road user hierarchy. The new concept for these rules’ centres around the differing levels of risk for road users in the event of a collision. The hierarchy considers the likelihood of the road user to be injured in the event of a collision and places them at most risk and at the top of the hierarchy. This sets the precedent that van drivers have an increase in responsibility within the context of vans interacting with other road users, as in the event of a collision they are less likely to come out worse than a cyclist, pedestrian, or motorcyclist. Pedestrians and cyclists would be an example of road users at the highest risk during a collision.
